mornings on 2, welcome to the 9:00 show. we have le bron james in town, that's a big story today. also sal, you were just talking about the hiring process for the fort -- 49ers. the patriot's offensive coach is out of the mix. changing to politics, about the lawmakers not attending the inauguration, i asked people on twitter, nine said it's okay,
exactly nine said, no, it's not. is it the right thing to do? we will talk about that later on. we begin with events being held across the country today in honor of martin luther king junior. >> i have a dream. my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. >> that was from the i have a dream speech. five years after that speech, he was assassinated. martin luther king day is a federal holiday and also a day of service. thousands of people turned out in oakland for the 15th
annual musical tribute honoring martin luther king. the event honored martin luther king but also marked how far the nation has come in terms of voting rights and civil rights. barbara lee was there talking about the growing controversy in washington over president- elect donald trump's tweet slamming john lewis. >> he does not know his history. congress man john lewis is a great leader. he is not just about talk, he represents his district, he helped to pass the voting rights act. he is a magnificent legislator. it's a shame that he took him on like it he did, not very
presidential. >> the congresswoman is boycotting the nawg rawtion because of his treatment of john lewis -- inauguration because of his treatment of john lewis. what used to be called the freedom train is making a special ride to remember doctor king's march from selma to montgomeraalabama -- montgomery alabama. we got a break from the rain over the weekend. we needed to let the water levels come down. they are running high but they
have come down, that helps a bit. fog is a big story. also rain is on the way, wednesday, friday, sunday and maybe next monday. it's not as wet as the last storm but it's impressive. fog is the big story in the valleys today. this is the leading edge of the system here. it's cold this morning. if you are in the fog it's really cold and foggy. look at that, it's nice eventually for the coast but it brings the fog over san pablo bay, it looks like the start of another wet pattern, the cold air is in place, today is mostly sunny after the fog. tuesday is nice. rain kicks in wednesday. then another system friday, then another system monday. there is not a lot on the
wednesday system but the system coming in friday, look at that, two to 3 inches. then saturday looks okay. then look what happens sunday into next monday. if santa rosa gets 5 inches of rain, the russian river will have seven and a half inches. so, i hate to say it, but enjoy the break while you can, it looks pretty wet going forward. things need to be watched as we head towards the weekend. >> thank you steve. with the presidential inauguration four days away, the political divide in washington, dc is deepening. some democrats are refusing the attend the inauguration.
>> reporter: here in dc, people are arriving to celebrate the inauguration, others are coming to protest it. here in washington, they use standins for the incoming president and first lady to run through the program. this is a massive undertaking and it's hardly going to be routine. >> i won the election because of strong borders and trade. >> reporter: but president- elect donald trump took on other targets including the director of the cia, john brennan and john lewis.
on60 minutes last night, president obama argued that partisanship is out of control. >> it's gotten so out of hand that we are weakening ourselves. >> reporter: back at the capitol, as we get closer to the event, the chairman of the inaugural committee said president-elect donald trump wanted something scaled back not a political rally. >> we went to the direction of the president elect who said, i do not want to do that, it's not appropriate after what we went through. we need a healing kind of an inauguration, we do not need a celebration of me. >> reporter: as far as president-elect donald trump's twitter account, he said he attends to keep the account active even after he gets the
official potus account. 23 democrats have joined the boycott. seven of them are from california including barbara lee. she will be talking about her decision to us at ktvu fox news, you can see that interview live during today's 4:00 show. new this morning, president- elect donald trump will take office with a lower approval rating than the past four presidentsment right now his rating is 44%, that compares to 83 for president obama, 61% for george bush in 2001 and 68 for bull bill in 1993. we have our political analyst. president-elect donald trump is at odds are the nation's intelligence community and he
has an interesting relationship with the press, mexico is not liking the idea of a border tax. >> you would never want to go in with a 44% approval rating but people are going to have to take time to see how this administration rolls out. if you start at the beginning saying, this is going to be a disaster, to use president- elect donald trump's word, it's a self-fulfilling prophesy. the american process includes giving the next president a chance to prove themselves. >> does this effect his inaugural address friday. >> i do not think it impacts that. the address sets the scene for the future. >> what is the tone? >> i think it's going to be lofty, he will take bits and
pieces of other inaugurals in terms of setting the 16. >> will he write his own speech? he is not a conventional person. sometimes other presidents had people write their speeches, will he be conventional or will he wing it? >> i think he will not wing it, i think he will receive input. i knew one of the presidential speech writers years ago, it's a tightly controlled thing, even though he goes off script a lot, i think he will stick to the script here. >> is it a lawmaker's duty to witness the peaceful transition of power. >> i think that a lawmaker needs to follow their conscience but they have to
remember that they are representing their constituents witnessing a peace of transfer of power, they are represents the democracy in america. i might take issue with it, understanding that people have to follow their conscience. >> we talked about the relationship with the media, the news conference, i will play a clip. >> not you, not you, your organization is terrible. not you. >> sir, can we ask a question. >> no. do you have any concerns going forward with the freedom of the press and the first amendment. >> every administration has problems with certain members
of the media. how vociferous he is, it's of concern, eventually he has to change hi toner with the media, but make no mistake, there is precedents for all of these things of course president nixon had a list of enemies. so did the obama administration. >> that's censorship. you are censoring someone from asking a question. >> what is the difference, the president always has a select list of people they are going to talk to. if you are not on the list, they are not calling on you any way. to be honest, a lot of that is show, every four years, the american public does not understand it but when there is a media conference, they have preselected the people that are asking the questions. but he is abrasive.
he has to talk that down, same with that twitter account. someone has to hide that from him. put it in the closet or something. >> thank you for joining us, we have been talking about the number of democratic lawmakers boycotting the inauguration, today we are asking, do you support their decision boycott, why or why not? >> foster said, they have the right to choose what they want but i support them not attending. another twitter user said they are small minded people. another person said, no support for boycotting, people need to be realize he is becoming our next president. >> you can share your responses at ktvu, the nine. coming up, a baby found

couple of months ago, that she may have been involved in this. >> there is always hope, i believe that there is always hope. >> reporter: using dna analysis they believe she's the stolen baby. >> i am not revealing her name, the name she's lived under for all of these years. >> reporter: police have arrested gloria williams on kidnapping charges, she could face life in prison. >> i am so glad, i cannot wait to see her. >> reporter: the woman's biological family is overwhelmed and have spoken with her. >> she was so glad. she looks like her daddy, she sounds so intelligent and
